Shelly Peiken

Singer-songwriter/author/creators' rights activist

Shelly Peiken is a multi-platinum American songwriter best known for Christina Aguilera’s No. 1 hit, “What a Girl Wants,” and Meredith Brooks’ GRAMMY nominated smash, “Bitch.”

Her book Confessions of a Serial Songwriter, a memoire that chronicles her journey from a young girl falling under the spell of magical songs to writing hits of her own, earned her a second GRAMMY nomination for Best Spoken Word Album.

After decades of writing songs for and with established artists and years of creators’ rights advocacy with SONA (Songwriters of North America), Shelly is thrilled to have recently released an album of her own — 2.0 etc… is a mix of ‘re-imaginations’ of her well-known songs and some personal favorites that have never been heard.
